Mixed Media - Stone Creation Brazilian Agate
24 x 24 x 2 in
Brazilian Agate: Brazil produces the majority of the agate mined in the world bringing all types and colors to the market. Along with this volume of Agate comes a wide variety of color and form, many of these specimens having quartz crystal features and pockets. A sweeping pocket of Quartz crystals dominates the center of this Agate which is rimmed with a dinge of peach and cream on one side. Colors of green, cream, and tan abound throughout. The most striking feature is the “treelike” structure rambling through the lower half of the stone. This looks remarkably like a branch of raw wood. Only a touch reveals it to be stone. The natural edge also displays colors of turquoise blue and red. This is one of the most unusual Agates we have found.
